Default Re: Listening session

I have a £2000 CD + DAC; bought second hand and have never thought about CD quality since. (I late started with CD as a player was £17 in a junk shop and then found that CDs were expensive)

Over the years I have found that there are good bad and mediocre CDs and that is down to the recording of them / transfer to CD from tape etc etc.

There are really wonderful CDs out there. (and many that are ...hm)

You can get **** vinyl too (from the pressing?).

But on the whole I am still surprised by the dynamics and overall quality of records - vinyl is an amazing medium.

And now I just want better - this is attainable.

CDV is usually a reference and (very) convenient.

SACD and DVD Audio can be mindblowingly something else. (It too can be 'not very good actually') I am very glad it exists .... getting close and sometimes better than good vinyl?
